If you suddenly start seeing more men (and women, too, Gothamist supposes) with distinct mustaches, don't be afraid - they are probably raising money for Mustaches for Kids New York! Mustaches For Kids New York is helping raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, using mustache growing as the motivating tool. Fundraisers meet each week at the Alligator Lounge in Williamsburg to check out their progress and cheer each other on (not to mention have a drink and some free pizza).

Our friend, K. Thor Jensen, whose stint as the "questionless interviewer" stirred things up for Gothamist, has a page devoted to his fundraising/'stache growing - he's at "Dirtlip" right now! We're kicking $30 to his cause, in hopes that he reaches at least the "Tom Selleck" level.
